ASUU Strike Continues
The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said the nationwide strike in public universities across the country will continue as its meeting with the Federal Government on Monday, met a deadlock.
The meeting which held at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment in Abuja, was presided over by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige.
The minister assured the union leaders that the government would take look into their demands.
The meeting which was supposed to pose a solution to the strike that has been on for five weeks, was later adjourned till Monday next week.
ASUU National President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi led the union delegates to the Abuja meeting which is coming after at least four meetings between the government and the union since the strike began.
Professor Ogunyemi, addressing reporters said the union would await the next adjournment date before it would take a decision on whether or not to suspend the industrial action that has entered its fifth week.
According to him, this is necessary to see how far the Federal Government will deliver on its promises made to address the concerns raised by the union.
